HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Arnie Huizenga on February 14. Have a terrific day!

 

THANK YOU for the concern, cards, prayers and visits after my recent surgery. It’s great to have such a caring support group to get you through life’s scary events. Overall surgery went well and I should be back to myself in no time (you’ve been warned).
